All non-EU/ETA students have to apply residence permit at the nearest Finnish embassy of his/her home country. Residence permit is issued by Finnish Immigration Service, shortly MIGRI.
We recommend to start the application process immediately after you will receive a letter of acceptance from the University of Oulu WCE programme in May. It is because the residence permit process takes typically 2...3 months and your studies will start at the beginning of September.
